Property-related disputes are some of the most common legal disputes in Pakistan. Whether you're
buying a property for investment purposes or you need a place to live for your family, it's important
to take precautions to avoid being scammed.
Before you sell or purchase a property, it is always in your best interest to consult with a
civil/property case lawyer. A property case lawyer will protect you against fraud, future disputes or
claims, and other legal issues that may arise from the sale or purchase of the property.
In most cases of fraud involving property, the victim has two available remedies: civil and criminal.
Parties in any fraud case can choose to press criminal proceedings in order to create pressure, but if
bail is granted to the other side, the victim may feel as though they have lost the case. Bail, however,
is only a temporary relief for the accused that allows them to avoid being put behind bars until the
conclusion of their trial.
If you've been wronged, it's important to take both criminal and civil action. You can contest the trial
and, at the same time, file a civil case to recover any property or money that you've lost. This is now
a settled principle of law, and it's perfectly possible to initiate both criminal and civil proceedings at
the same time. In the trial, the accused will be punished for their crime, while in the civil case you
may be able to recover damages for breach of contract, or get your money back if you paid the
accused for something they didn't deliver. It mainly depends on the merits of your case. If you need

Under Pakistani law, the person who holds the title to a piece of property is presumed to be the
rightful owner of that property. This means that as soon as you purchase a property, you need to
take steps to have the ownership transferred into your name in order to protect your investment. If
there are any outstanding issues or disputes relating to the property, you may not be able to get the
ownership transferred into your name, so it's important to be aware of this before you finalize any
Before making any decisions regarding a property purchase, it is essential that you verify the title of
This is another common issue that can come up between a buyer and seller when it comes to
property. After the earnest money (Bianna) has been paid by the buyer to the seller, if either party
refuses to go through with the agreement, the aggrieved party can take legal action to force them to
uphold their end of the bargain.
We've also seen cases where a fake or forged agreement is presented to the court in order to get a
stay on the property. But don't worry - our property case lawyers will be able to get the stay lifted in
Possession of property is just as important as ownership when it comes to the Pakistani property
law. According to the law, every owner has the right to enjoy their property as they please.
However, if you do not have possession of the property, what good is the ownership? In court, it is
presumed that the person in possession of the property is legally allowed to be there unless proven
otherwise. Our experience has taught us that possession disputes can come in many different forms,
The landlord-tenant relationship in Pakistan has evolved over the years to offer more protection to
the owner of the property. It's always recommended to have a well-written tenancy agreement,
renewal, as appropriate, signed and thumbed by the tenant. This reduces the risk of disputes arising
among landlord and tenant, including the tenant's claim of ownership of the property. If you have
been deprived of possession of your property by a tenant who has defaulted on their rent payments
and refuses to vacate the premises, you may have legal recourse.
There are many disputes that can arise between landlords and tenants, such as over the sale or
purchase of property, boundary disputes, evictions, and recovery of rent. Burhan & Associates can
help you draft agreements and get the necessary non-judicial stamp papers, as well as register FIRs
relating to property disputes. We can also help you obtain a stay or interim injunction on your
property, ensuring that children get their inheritance fairly.
